The Netherlands: Assessing 3D Printed Geo-Polymers in Concrete

Researchers from The Netherlands are exploring further potential for 3D printing with concrete, outlining their findings in the recently published ‘Life cycle assessment of 3D printing geo-polymer concrete: An ex-ante…

University of Stuttgart Investigating Reinforcement of 3D Printed Concrete

The interest in 3D printed concrete continues to skyrocket – after all, who wouldn’t be interested in a solution that could allow for extremely rapid construction of structures like bridges…

Modular, Digital Construction System for 3D Printing Lightweight Reinforced Concrete Spatial Structures

Spatial structure systems, like lattices, are efficient load-bearing structures that are easy to adapt geometrically and well-suited for column-free, long-spanning constructions, such as hangars and terminals, and in creating free-form…

Thixotropy, Nanoclay and the Optimal Parameters of 3D Printed Concrete

In ‘The Effect of Material Fresh Properties and Process Parameters on Buildability and Interlayer Adhesion of 3D Printed Concrete,’ international authors strive to understand more about materials and parameters in…

3D Printed Bridge Was a Labor of Love for Army Engineer

At Camp Pendleton in Southern California, mechanical engineer Megan Kreiger with the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center spent some time recently working with a team on a project…

Testing the Properties of Fiber-Reinforced Geopolymer 3D Printing Material

In a paper entitled “Effect of Polypropylene Fibre Addition on Properties of Geopolymers Made by 3D Printing for Digital Construction,” a group of researchers investigates the effect of polypropylene (PP)…

Self Repairing Cities Project Continues to Make Progress with Flying Road-Fixing 3D Printers

The holiday season is here…and so is the season for terrible roads. Snow and ice will be ruling the roads for the next few months, and when they go, they…

Researchers Evaluate 3D Printability of Different Types of Concrete

To 3D print concrete, several parameters must be met. It must be able to be extruded through a nozzle, hold its shape once deposited, and also be able to hold…

SCRIM: New Method of 3D Printing Concrete Uses Mesh to Create Lightweight Structures

3D printed construction is a growing field, with new methods being developed on a regular basis. The latest comes from the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) of the Royal…
